    4.5 stars This is one of my favorite books I love the Robin Hood myth Rather than taking center stage, though, in Sheriff, he s a background character It s also not an adventure book, but rather a political and historical narrative from the sheriff s point of view Instead of being a scalawag, he s upright, uptight, and uncompromising Right and wrong are white and black Sheriff falls very solidly into the historical fiction genre, so there s a fair amount of history covered during the c 4.5 stars This is one of my favorite books I love the Robin Hood myth Rather than taking center stage, though, in Sherif...
